Reader comment on item: Muhammad Ali v. George W. Bush

Submitted by Donald O (United States), Nov 30, 2005 at 21:18

this was the part that I was referring to - in Daniel's main article

"The president also did not touch on Ali's religious side, but Mark Kram did in his 2001 book, Ghosts of Manila: The Fateful Blood Feud between Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier: "Ali broke every tenet of real Muslim law, from whoring to being truant at Temple service; he was a religious fake who abdicated his personal worth to the Black Muslims for their expediency and draft evasion, [and was] therefore, counterfeit down to his socks."

it doesn't seem anyone that knows of his adventures denies these issues. Some changed their names [if not much else] because it seemed fashionable at the and you might find a name that rhymes. Like 'ahmad rashad' - who was an average player at best - but he had a really cool name. Is he really a practicing muslim?
